  1. I agree 100%. Did a $200.00 order and it had over $100.00 in shipping from six different locations! Needed to return some stuff and it was the same deal. Had to go back to each origin location so separate shipping charge for each one! Would have to be the last resource for me to go down that road again.
  2. Nice yard art. Already weathered patina.
  3. Never have understood the logic behind that. It didn’t sell at your listed price so re-list it at a higher price. Maybe the higher price will attract more interest? I just don’t get it!
  4. Mike, Circled in yellow in the picture. Is this to the factory electronic distributor? Do you know the correct wiring for it?
  5. Not sure if it’s the same on all 510’s. That location has a hole there but no thread provision for a seat belt anchor. Some have welded in an aftermarket belt anchor at that location. Depending on how tall you are and how the belt sits across your shoulder and chest, it’s better suited for location of the belt going across your shoulder and not your neck. Some have said the B pillar wasn’t engineered for a belt anchor and doesn’t have the needed strengths for it. Don't know so use your own discretion for your car and your comfort level.
  6. Have you tried asking that question to T3?
  7. Or plating of some kind. Cad plating was real popular back then.
  8. Previous owner panted mine black. I thought they were polished or chromed underneath, no?
  9. Where can theses corners be purchased?
  10. Time Left: 11 days and 9 hours

    Looking for a descent plastic cover that covers the torsion rods for the hatch on a 1972 510 wagon. Two part numbers show up in the parts Manual, an early and a later one. Not sure of the difference Located in the rear of the headliner. Prefer a white one, can change color though. Mostly looking for one that’s not all cracked and brittle.

  11. Where did you find NOS door trim pieces? Is that something that is still available or were they acquired a long time ago?
  12. Stroffregen, thanks that’s a great source. One of the things that bugged me about general hardware supply for metric is the larger head size compared to the original Datsun hardware head size. Haven’t looked at the pricing yet but definitely a good source for correct size hardware. zed1, good information learned about JIS screwdrivers a long, long )time ago from working on Japanese motorcycle. They are a must have to loosen Japanese Phillips head screws.
  13. Mike, Once again you’re correct. Silly me I was hoping the old part numbers would supersede up to a current Nissan part number. Most don’t. Been down a rabbit hole checking the 510 numbers without much luck. grannyknot, Thank you very much. That’s most helpful for sourcing through regular hardware suppliers. Having the correct sizes to get is great.
  14. Mike, Was thinking/hoping maybe someone had previously made a list of the most commonly used bolts and screws. My particular application is a 72 510 Wagon but so much of Datsun’s Hardware is common to many models. 420n620, Thanks that’s very helpful! With some leg work should be able to find part numbers for hardware and then some.
